Share the Joy of giving
Posted on 11/30/2015
What brings you joy during the holidays? Aren’t the little things – like giving the perfect present – highly rewarding and heartwarming?
“Share the Joy” is The Gathering Place’s holiday giving campaign. By donating a gift card to our “Share the Joy” campaign, you provide mothers, grandmothers, aunts, and friends with the opportunity to feel the joy of shopping for and choosing that perfect gift for their loved ones.
Though it may seem small, one $25 gift card will allow an individual receiving services at The Gathering Place to shop for presents or other much needed items for their family and loved ones without worrying about how to pay for those purchases. And the $25 gift cards help ensure that the children who come to The Gathering Place receive holiday gifts chosen specifically for them this year. Please note that The Gathering Place does not accept toy donations.
You can “Share the Joy” this holiday season by donating a gift card, or cards, in $25 denominations from Walmart, Target, King Soopers, or Safeway to The Gathering Place. If you are hosting a holiday party or participating in an office celebration, encourage attendees to bring gift cards in lieu of gifts.
Gift cards can be mailed to The Gathering Place (PO Box 181325, Denver CO 80218) or dropped off in person (1535 High Street). You can also donate to the "Share the Joy" campaign online at ColoradoGives.org. Be sure to specify in the comments section that this is a gift to "Share the Joy." Please plan to have your gift cards or monetary donation designated for “Share the Joy” to The Gathering Place by December 12th (the same day as our December Saturday donation drop-off day) so we can distribute them and the recipients then have time to do their shopping before the holidays. Donations that are not used during our “Share the Joy” distribution will be used at the discretion of The Gathering Place’s executive team to serve our greatest needs.
